After the revelation of DiVE Armor Sigma and the cancelled Rockman Xover collaboration, we have more comprehensive view of the unused and cut content featured in the recently-released Rockman X DiVE artbook. With an extensive collection of unseen bosses and character poses, this artbook holds a wealth of discoveries waiting to be unveiled.
Check 'em out after the break!
(Thanks to our friend Radiant for providing the images!)
Let's revisit DiVE Armor Sigma and the characters from the Rockman Xover collaboration that didn't make it before the game was taken offline. This time, we have higher-quality images to share with you.
Next, there's a collection of bosses to explore. We've got Incentas, who was previously leaked (unintentionally) by NebulaJoy in one of their ads, as well as Eregion and Violen, who managed show up in the credits sequence of Mega Man X DiVE Offline. Additionally, there's Mosquitus a mid-boss from Mega Man X3, Eyezard a mid-boss from Mega Man X4, and a glimpse at the backside of Kaiser Sigma.
Here are alternative poses for DiVE Armor X, Zero, Axl, Iris, RiCO, and DiVE Cross MegaMan.
Next up, we have alternative designs for "Iris -another-" and Droitclair that significantly differ from their final designs.
Below, here's a 2-page spread of "ViA■" showcasing different poses, alternate designs with different color schemes (including one with a notably more menacing appearance than his final design), and a final design described as "Sigma+ViA".
And finally, we have a huge amount of alternate poses for several individual characters.
As you can imagine, we can't show you the entire book here. However, if this preview has intrigued you, the artbook is available for purchase through various retailers such as CDJapan, AmiAmi, Amazon Japan and Play-Asia.
The book has a lot to offer if you're a fan of the game or Rockman art in general. Be sure to check out!
